How to Draw 3D Letters

Learn how to draw 3D letters with a “cheat sheet” that gives you a clear sample of the entire alphabet, all on a single page.

This is one tool that I wished I had in my classroom, back in the day. It’s a complete alphabet for students that are practicing their lettering, be it just block or the more advanced 3D shapes.

Some students that are new to lettering, may just need to see examples of the block letters. Others that get the gist of 3D letters, might just need to see a few of the more unusual ones.

  • Drawing Paper. Don’t substitute it with copy paper or construction paper. The surface will get fuzzy, erasing might cause holes, and the colors will generally not look as bright.
  • Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most reliable, make nice dark lines when you need them, and are the easiest to erase.
  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.Stabilo Markers. They have the best colors, the best tips, and last the longest.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent markers make nice black lines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them in areas with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath for table protection.
  • Stabilo Markers. The large pack provides lots of fun color choices, several shades of each color, including a few choices for skin. The tips are perfect for coloring, and there’s even a promise that they will work after being uncapped for 8 weeks!
